    I did this last weekend, and have no clue as to what the cartridge is called, go look it up in Halfords, and the sealing ring is wrong in Halfords, just to warn you...

    I used 0-30 fully synthetic.....

    i used to put mobil 1 0w-40 in mine as i wanted a thin oil when cold for the timing chain! its a paper cartridge filter as well! stay away from halfords as they are crap and expensive! go to vauxhall or your local motor factors! the vauxhall filter comes with the seals! the sump plug ring is seperate so ask for one they are about 20p!

    Good man, I went to vaux skurrys in swindon and they had nothing in stock, told me to go to halfords, and like about the part in the book was wrong for the 2.2 washer/plug...

    on another note the gent at vaux looked up the motor, frowned and said, oww thats a GM engine!
